LOL! That's funny.

I should have been more clear that I don't actually know how much I was down on power (didn't dyno the car before or after), but somehow I think that most people would notice power loss from 6 broken piston rings, regardless of what the starting hp was. If not, then maybe they don't need that 3rd ring after all.
